Interviewer: What were your first impressions of each other?
Rashida: I do remember, like, that semi–high school moment where I’m like, “Oh my God, she’s so cool. She shouldn’t be this cool for how talented she is and how pretty she is.”
Amy: I’ve met a lot of my closest friends after I turned 30, and Rashida’s certainly one of them. It’s so nice to be able to find a like-minded person who you really admire. And who’s your homie.
Rashida: I’m going to cry.
Amy: I think you should title this sidebar “Straight-up Homies.” And then you should write, “What’s happening now? They’re happening!” And then for the art, we don’t want our faces.
Rashida: Maybe some animals.
Amy: Or just like, will you superimpose our faces on the supermodels in the George Michael “Freedom! ‘90” video?
Rashida: Perfect. By the bathtub.
